Method for filling of Coulibiac

Sweat onions in butter. Cut the white fillets in strips and season with the salt, pepper, nutmeg, mustard and onion. (Season Well)
Mince fish finely or purée in a food processor. Place fish in a bowl over ice and add the egg white a little t a time, then add the panada
gradually. Beat until smooth and silky. THE MIXTURE MUST REMAIN COLD. Beat in the cream a spoonful at a time, and then
add the chopped fresh herbs, capers, lemon rind and juice. It is important that the filling is seasoned enough to also flavour the salmon

To assemble the coulibiac

Divide pastry in half. Roll out one half into a rectangle and cut out a fish shape. Place on baking sheet. Spread half the mousse over
the pastry leaving a 2 cm border. Place the salmon fillet down the centre and cover with remaining mousse and smooth over with a
palette knife. Eggwash the border. Roll out other half of the pastry, cut into shape, cover and seal removing all air pockets.
To make the mouth: Two olive sized balls of dough rolled into a teardrop shape, joined together at tapered end
To make eye: Cut out a 2 cm circle and raise level of the hole with 2 rings of dough to allow steam to escape and prevent liquid
overflowing Place funnel of aluminium foil in hole
To make the fins: Use leftover pastry to make fins and tail and eggwash into position
Use tips of scissors to make scale pattern and eggwash the tips of the scales.
Place in oven at 220°C reducing to 180°C for 30 to 40 mins. Serve hot or cold
